The Allegation | Kangs Harassment Offences Defence Solicitors

Our client was alleged to have knowingly and deliberately pursued a course of harassment of the Complainant by way of insults and threats and issuing malicious reports to his employer.

Our client vehemently denied the allegations maintaining that contact:

  • with the Complainant was reasonable having regard to an on-going civil dispute which was taking place and
  • with the Complainant’s employer was not malicious but focused on issues concerning alleged professional misconduct.

How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Offences Against The Person Defence Solicitors

The Team at Kangs Solicitors when preparing our client’s defence:

  • instructed experienced Queen’s Counsel to represent the client in Court
  • attended her taking detailed instructions on all issues
  • advised her upon her position and the appropriate manner in which to proceed
  • attended with her at Court when she entered a ‘Not Guilty’ plea
  • having discovered, whilst conducting a detailed examination of the Prosecution evidence, that there may have been an abuse of process a Formal Request for Review of the case was meticulously prepared and submitted to the Prosecution upon the basis that their case, as presented, failed to pass either the requisite Evidential Test or the Public Interest Test.

The Successful Outcome | Kangs Abuse Of Process Solicitors

  • As the Prosecution rejected our contentions and continued with the Prosecution, the Team at Kangs Solicitors placed the Prosecution on Notice that it was intended to put to the court that there existed an abuse of process.
  • Accordingly, Queen’s Counsel was instructed to assist in the preparation and presentation of our previous submissions to the court.
  • Upon consideration of our Application and the submissions we had presented, the Prosecution confirmed that it was discontinuing the Prosecution.

Naturally, our client was extremely grateful for this success which had been achieved for her.
